Children, Geometry and all things Sacred

DSCN3379DSCN3347Last week I celebrated the opportunity of a lifetime, an experience I will co-create whenever and wherever possible! It was a morning hanging out with 11-year olds who were cooperating in what was billed ‘Science Olympics’ where teams co-created by folding 2D geometry templates into 3D forms, then using these fundamental ‘blocks’ to build a structure! What was magical was when they figured out how to make it dynamic! The City Mayor put in an appearance and shared with me, the brother of my heart, Tamir Ashman, and others, how he knew something special was going on when the kids ignored him! Telling us that they usually stop and drop what they’re doing, that morning they were all but ignoring him! That day produced rainbows inside and out, and reminded me how such Technicolored gifts can appear out of nowhere. Better yet, it was another lesson in remembering that the value of what is true priceless, and that the most precious are seldom material things.

For my friends who are today experiencing sorrow or loss, may you realize that the light shining through the heart and eyes of those who love you has the power to open the rainbow and do far more than renew your hope; together you have all necessary ingredients to birth the beauty that inspires visions so you can breathe life into long forgotten dreams. Find opportunities to co-create rainbows in your day today, remembering that they form when water, light, space and time agree to cooperate in the birth of beauty. If your ‘water’ is a tear, allow it to melt illusion and help open you to love. Every day I remember that each breath is a gift, a timeless moment that is filled with magic when I am open, willing and able to see. Let me encourage you to take or make time today to bask in awe as beauty arises from the ethers of your essence, and allow your heart to be nurtured by memories of love that arise from the mists of time so your spirit will once again feel the freedom that comes from having the wind under your wings.

And to those who have the courage, ability and will to help; we need and welcome your ideas, assistance and centres of influence as we make the BeLonging Projects and Octafold our High Play as we help nurture the bodies, hearts, minds and spirits of the Children, those who will soon be leading us into tomorrow, build a strong Future.

Two days into the transition from Israel to California, the first miracle is that I have virtually no jetlag and made the 10-hour time change instantly! However, after five-weeks in Tel Aviv, there is a very strange unwinding in my body but its unimaginably more challenging to accept what’s happening in my emotional and recognitive realities. What I’m realising is the almost unimaginable toll that comes with living in a nation state that’s constantly under threat from those outside its borders, and worse is living with the tension of being a divided land.

Listening to politicians and people on the street toss verbal sticks and stones is bruising my heart as heavy clouds attempt to darken my heart. Only knowing what I know, working with others who are open-hearted, open-minded, and serve with loving hands, and meeting others who get what the last 28-years of my life –and the rest of my life– are all about, is what keeps my head high enough to see the rainbow.

It’s time to understand that children who don’t really understand ‘the game’ of “I’m right, You’re wrong”, or “Us vs Them”. No parent or teacher can make sense or explain to a child what the politicians are up to.

Keeping my promise to return in two weeks is not an option, and I am begging for those who realise how privileged they are to live in a world without the daily threat of real war to help. It’s time for those who can to step up and become those who will , coming together to make a positive difference, living lives that display courage and a true reverence for life. We will soon announce the Director of the BeLonging Projects in Israel, and if you want to honour diversity and help teachers, kids and parents celebrate Unity, please donate to this amazing project. Raising a generation of adults who respect themselves and others is the key to the equality that is essential to genuine freedom. This project is an experience whereby kids discover that the assumption of unity without diversity is fabricated, and utterly fails. It’s about children learning to uphold noble principles and values that include the right to health and well-being, transparency, compassion, fairness and integrity.

Imagine the future with this and the next generation embodying these traits…

Imagine ‘Thought leaders’ understanding that living requires the constant renewal of the foundation that is essential to re-establish connections and keep communication clear…

The Mereon Matrix is showing us how to rebuild our lives and our relationships in order to harmonise our actions with the harmony implicit in Nature herself. The BeLonging Projects give children the experience of self-discovery and learning new ways to live with one another and on the planet. This programme helps empower the Future by lifting teachers, kids and parents to a new perspective, this, the only place from which they can clearly see the way forward, and then walk together to open Age of Transformation.

Thank you so much for passing these thoughts on and doing whatever you can do to help.

News:

At the Heart of The BeLonging Project is true knowledge,
wisdom that makes it far more than a programme for teachers and kids…
it’s about learning to live wholly and fully and co-creating loving relationships;
it’s about building sustainable businesses and more!

Balancing and Reflecting as Self-Centering

happiness dancing and reflectingSeveral days ago while out with friends, watching this beautiful child joyously engage with his reflection, it was crystal clear that he was also paying very close attention to his family! Because my brain naturally sees an inverse perspective, I suddenly became aware how this ‘darkened’ plate of glass would appear as a cubic space, and saw how it was more than a metaphor for the realm that we adults often find ourselves trapped in. It was once again clear to me how often we forget that freedom isn’t about needing to break something down; more often than not the truest breakthroughs in life come from our being willing to simply turn around.

Every day we are given opportunities to turn, and yet so often we over-think and twist our heart and spin our time away, and in our dizziness we are unaware of what has passed us by.

Today and everyday it is your choice to live wholly and fully.

What will you make of this remarkable Chance of a lifetime?

Left out, drop out or Belonging?

BelongingProjectsFind the courage to look into and through the eyes of the children, those who are preparing to inherit or abdicate the world that we, supposed grown ups, are creating.

Transformation requires that we identify and harness true wisdom. The closest place to find it is in childlike innocence that transcends our childish attitudes and foolish behaviours.
